The families of three young boys who were injured as they played near the railway in the Black Country are to sue rail bosses....and who'd be surprised if it was, then maybe the rail company should countersue for the repair bill?
One boy was injured when he came into contact with a 25,000 volt cable, another suffered minor burns, while the third was left traumatised after witnessing it.
The families claim a "big gaping hole" in the fence had not been repaired and allowed the boys to get in and play.
The families want compensation for the "psychological trauma" the boys suffered, as well as their physical injuries.We, the British public, should demand compensation from the parents for the aggravation reading such ghastly chutzpah causes us.
“It is well known that children, commonly teenagers, will play upon railway property, or enter to 'train surf'," Mr Hannington said. "The fact that they are not permitted to be there does not absolve the railway operator or landowner of any responsibilities to the children trespassing."Funny. I never did as a child.
